Every 5200 years we come to this point when the Earth becomes dark for a period of 60 to 70 hours… Many people take advantage of the Mayan calendar scaring our people with threatening words where it says that the world will be ending. So in this sense that I tell you to all my brothers do not be afraid. The sun will go dark, the planet Earth will not see the sun but we should understand it is like the New Year. The old year ended December 31st… tomorrow January 1st. Happy New Year! That is what we should do when the day comes.
We do not have a date to say that it is going to be the 12th of December.. it could be 2015, 2020 or further on. We are lost to the correct date.

And also, doesn't it seem that maybe the government knows about this and is trying to take advantage of this? Or spin it to their advantage?
Just a thought. Belittling 2012 is fine, but who is trying to make it big? Is it the fringe internet population that draws people's attention? Or is it hollywood?
At a time when we may soon expect a much expanded interest in the meaning of the Mayan calendar such interpretations of an event taking place on a special date are obviously very much welcomed by the defenders of the established order for the simple reason that they do not imply that we need to participate in a process of evolution of consciousness. Moreover, if the Mayan calendar is only about an event that happens in the sky what else would there be to do other than sit and wait with arms crossed for this event to take place? Fortunately, for the serious student of the Mayan calendar system, it has a much greater richness than this and may help people understand both the past and the future and at the same time provide a meaningful spiritual context for life.

Ah, so thats the tale of the 3 days of darkness, it occurs during the calendar rollover. Now that would be special.
Whats also interesting is a similar story reported by the ancient Egyptians, but in their report they had 3 days of Sun. The Egyptians said the tides changed and the Nile ran backward. The Sun would dip low in the sky but never set and then rise again.
So I guess where ever you are during this time, you would either get 3 days of dark or 3 days of light.
I assume the only thing strong enough to tilt the earth like that would be the galactic core. So it takes about 3 days to move through its influence.
Now if the earth tilted, wouldn't that cause massive earthquakes worldwide because of plate/fault stress and slippage? The Mayan and Egyptian reports I read never mentioned any earthquakes, but they may have neglected to report that detail if their area didn't experience any problems.

It is western culture that has taken this 2012 thing and turned it into "doom and gloom," not the ancient cultures.
